We love Upwork because it has a large database of freelancers. It’s also relatively affordable and easy to use.

What's Inside

Upwork Review

Formally known as Elance-oDesk, Upwork is a platform that connects businesses of all sizes to freelancers across different service types. First, businesses post projects in need of freelancer help, and Upwork’s AI-powered talent matching will bring up the best freelancers available for the job. All that’s left to do is to recruit, manage, and pay the selected freelancer, all through the platform.
